I have an old battery left from the old car and I need a jump starter kit. It seems all jump starters have integrated motorcycle battery inside. I curious whether jump starters with a place for a car battery exists? It will be even better if they sold without the battery, so I can use my old battery (I save a lot of money on that since I'm in Siberia and to deliver jump starter here cost me twice of the price of the jump starter itself).

  • Something like what is mentioned in this thread may be of use to you. I don't know what the availability would be to you in Siberia, though. Commented Nov 5, 2014 at 12:26
  • Keep in mind that automotive batteries are optimized for fast discharge and don't really like being drained all the way. Most of the jump starter packs I've seen use a battery optimized for deep cycle so they can pack a bunch of electricity into a smaller space and it relies on being able to charge the fast discharge battery in the car for starting.

You don't really need a kit for anything other than convenience. All you need is a pair of jumper cables, which you can make or purchase, and you've got your jump starter right there.

I would also purchase a trickle charger to keep my jumping battery charged when not in use. If you really want to get fancy you can make a cart or a box for it, for easy storage/use.
